“[A] guy was going down the street rocking parked cars back and forth. The rocking inevitably set a car alarm to wailing. The thief knew that nobody in the neighborhood would pay the slightest attention to a car alarm, so he used the noise to cover the sound of breaking the window.

Audible car alarms are not only incredibly annoying, but almost entirely useless: they do not reduce crime or deter thieves, and they produce an overall net negative impact on society. So why do they still exist?

Why are we taking anything The Verge writes seriously?? Especially about web design

"Web-based articles, these days, are increasingly an exercise in pain and frustration. In many ways, the experience of reading such things is worse today than it was in the early days of dial-up internet. "
Advertising is making the mobile web almost unusable by clogging up our bandwidth – which may end up driving users to Apple News or Facebook apps

I have no idea what the purpose of this article was...
Fair warning. You're going to hate this one. I want to stop pushing the web forward for a while. I want a moratorium on new browser features for about a year or so. Recently I've been having serious doubts about the whole push the web forward thing. Why should we push the web forward?

"...more than 40% of teaching staff at universities are now part-time faculty without tenure, or adjunct lecturers paid per course given, with no health insurance or the kind of other things associated with a standard employment relationship."
Academic systems rely on the existence of a supply of “outsiders” ready to forgo wages and employment security in exchange for the prospect of uncertain security, prestige, freedom and reasonably h...

This is why software patents are terrible
